Great Quote

Sorry, my life the past few weeks has been pretty boring. I don't have much to update you on. Except I finished this great book called Criss Cross, and it had a great quote in it that hit close to home for me. It says, "I think that it's a good thing to get out of your usual, you know, surroundings. Because you find things out about yourself that you didn't know, or you forgot. And then you go back to your regular life and you're changed, you're a little bit different because you take those new things with you. Like a Hindu, except all in one life; you sort of get reincarnated depending on what happened and what you figured out. And any one place can make you go forward, or backward, or neither, but gradually you find all your pieces, your important pieces, and they stay with you, so that you're your whole self no matter where you go. Your Buddha self. That's my theory, anyway."
As I was reading this, I thought that this is the reason why I'm moving, why I'm leaving what I'm comfortable and used to, and what I hope to gain in the next year of my life. I felt so at peace about my decision after reading that! Not much new wit that by the way. I've been looking at a ton of apartments to rent online, and been looking at jobs on craigslist. I plan on going out for a few days in July to find a place hopefully, and then officially move August 3rd? But we'll see what happens until then, especially with my recovery process.

Hey you I found you! Yes what that quote said is true. When you do get out of your surrondings you found out a lot about yourself that is for sure! Now that I live in the middle of nowhere with no family around just me my kids and my husband I have learned so much about myself! I have grown up so much and I am a better person because of this and I love it! It was good to read your blog I hope to hear from you soon!
